One thing that I crave is a soda! Lately, I notice I have been getting headaches after I drink a diet soda which I have found this effect from Splenda but not aspartame which is in most diet sodas. I have been searching for a healthier replacement for a carbonated beverage.
I think my quest has ended with Mendota Sparkling Water. Wow, very good. I have tried other sparkling waters and they usually stay in my fridge for a couple of months because I make myself drink them. Now I realize sparkling water is a little difficult for dedicated pop lovers so it may take some time to enjoy this drink.
I like this product because the ingredients are carbonated water and natural lemon flavor and that is it! It contains zero calories and zero on everything else – sugar, carbs and sodium.
This product comes in a 12-pack of cans and a 6-pack of 20-oz bottles. I have not yet tried the lime but hear it is also very good. The price for a 6-pack of 20-oz bottles is about $2.66. It is actually cheaper than soda, when it is not on sale.
Overall, the product helps me satisfy my “soda craving” as I am becoming soda free and drinking more and more water.
Another little trick I tried is adding a packet of True Orange into this lemon sparkling water. ALMOST like an orange soda, almost!
True Orange is 100% natural made up of pure crystallized orange. This product also comes in other flavors such as lemon and lime but orange is my favorite! True Lemon website
